Titanic Wiki

Second Class Cabins were less luxurious than the most basic First Class Cabins, but mostly a lot better than a Third Class cabin, and their occupants had plenty of basic furnuture and necessities. Well, for the largest part at least. A less known fact about Titanic is that her completion was so rushed, to remain on her maiden voyage deadline and tight schedule, that an amount of Second Class rooms weren't entirely finished, too small and cramped or not even completely furnished. Several of them even didn't have proper heating which made them feel like an iced cell. There were even half-eaten sandwiches found, left by workmen. One passenger, Imanita Shelley, complained a lot about this and other half-arsed business in Second Class areas.


Second-class staterooms were very comfortable, featuring oak paneling painted a glossy white, linoleum floors, mahogany furniture usually consisting of a large sofa, wardrobe, and dressing table with washbasin, mirror, and storage shelves. All the taps were connected to huge freshwater tanks located deep within the ship and many rooms contained "tipped" washbasins on shelves that could be folded back into the cabinet to save room. Shared staterooms were segregated by sex so that single women or men often shared staterooms with one another. Unlike in First Class, which offered several Staterooms with private bathrooms, Second-class bathroom facilities were all shared. Communal lavatories and bathrooms were separated by companionways and divided by sex. A bath could be had on request to a steward and bed linen was changed daily.


  • D-Deck: At the stern of D Deck there were 39 Second Class staterooms. They were labeled from D-51 to to D-89.
  • E-Deck: There were 65 staterooms on E Deck, all of them on starboard side. They were labeled from E-43 to E-107. 46 of them were alternative 1st class for when there was high demand. They were counted as second class cabins though. They went from E-43 to E-88.
  • F-Deck: There were 64 staterooms on F Deck. They were labeled from F-1 to F-69. There was no F-13 for superstition. There were no rooms labeled F-46, F-48, F-66 or F-68 either.
  • G-Deck: There were 40 alternative Second/Third Class staterooms on G Deck, but they were counted as Third Class cabins.
